The Stations of the Cross: An Occasional Series

Okay, Blogger just ate part two of "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant," thus wasting a couple of hours of work.

Given that one definition of insanity is repeating the same action in the hope of a different result, I have decided to just -- you know, fuck off for the weekend.

See you on Monday, assuming I don't slash my wrists in the interim.

UPDATE: And speaking of the Stations of the Cross, I thought I'd post the picture below, for obvious reasons. From Nicholas Ray's 1961 King of Kings (or as they referred to it in the trades at the time, I Was a Teenage Jesus) here's the late Jeffrey Hunter, as the Big J, ascending to Calvary in green Italian hushpuppies.

This is one of my all time favorite photos ever; to my knowledge, it only ever appeared in the deluxe movie tie-in book that came with the original MGM King of Kings soundtrack, an elpee which featured prominently on the stereo playlist at Casa Simels back in my youth.

Where are we going to go, Mama Leone's? See you Monday.

Dude, write your longer posts in a text editor first. I know, it's inconvenient, but it's two extra steps vs. slamming yourself in the face with a keyboard every time some sucky content management system demonstrates exactly why it sucks. (Desktop Macs come with ALUMINUM keyboards nowadays, by the way, which is how I came to this solution.)

I have a pair of those green hush puppies. They are quite comfy.
